Not -- Conor McGregor: Another fighter also received some bad health news. McGregor, who won with a decision last weekend, tore his ACL in the fight. He will be out for around 10 months.

Hot -- Wanderlei Silva: For months, Chael Sonnen has pushed to fight Wanderlei Silva. Recognizing he was in an advantageous spot, Silva asked for more money to fight Sonnen. The UFC hasn't made a decision, but it's a smart play by Silva.
